LINDSEY VANZANDT: Queen MMA Media 2017 Pro WMMA Athlete of the Year


(QUEEN MMA MEDIA) – Queen MMA Media is proud to present the QUEEN MMA MEDIA 2017 WMMA Professional Athlete of the Year Award to Lindsey “Damsel” VanZandt. Lindsey has proven herself to be an exciting and dynamic atomweight in 2017.  She was selected due to her impressive three fight win streak in a four month period of time and her outstanding start as a professional.  VanZandt made her women’s mixed martial arts professional debut in July of 2017 with a second round TKO victory over Katie Saull at King of the Cage ‘Regulator’.  On September 30, 2017 Lindsey gained a dominating second round TKO win versus Rachel “The Black Widow” Sazoff at Maverick MMA 3.  Less than one month later on October 28, 2017 VanZandt continued her undefeated run as a professional with a three round split decision win against Bi “Killher Bee” Nguyen.  VanZandt mustered the split decision despite suffering a broken right hand early in the first round.  With a current professional record of 3 – 0 Lindsey has demonstrated a remarkable level of achievement, dedication, and success for a rookie WMMA pro athlete.  Congratulations to Lindsey VanZandt!

“The highlight of my year was definitely my win against Bi Nguyen and overcoming the injury in the first round because I was nobody compared to her and no one thought I was going to win so that was very exciting,” Lindsey “Damsel” VanZandt
